IceArenA – Our History
We have have had many changes for names, logos and functions; we are still the Largest Permanent Ice Surface in Adelaide!
IceArenA, located in Thebarton, Adelaide, South Australia first opened on 17 September 1981 as the Ice Arena. In late 1987, the centre closed for construction of the world’s first indoor ski slope and reopened later that year as Mt Thebarton Snow and Ice, featuring artificial snow. The centre underwent a further name change to Snowdome Adelaide. Most recently, following the closure of the Ski Slope in 2005, a final name change to IceArenA was made.
The venue offers a wide variety of activities including ice hockey and ice skating lessons, snow play sessions, school holiday skating, public skating sessions, and it is also the home venue of the Adelaide Adrenaline ice hockey men’s and women’s teams.
